KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) - A Killeen man has been indicted for allegedly spreading gasoline throughout a Killeen home and setting it on fire back in July, following a domestic disturbance incident earlier that night.

Wayne Eugene Remaley, 59, was indicted on a charge of arson for a house fire in the 2800 block of Chaparral Rd. on July 1. The incident happened about 7:30 p.m., when Bell County Sheriff's Deputies found Remaley barricaded near the front door of the home after being shot in the face when a domestic dispute with Susanne Lawrence, 54, turned violent.

According to the Bell County Sheriff's Office, Lawrence had filed a protective order against Remaley before the dispute erupted. During the incident, another man went to the home to help Lawrence, and was stabbed in the arm.

During the incident, Remaley was shot in the face and then barricaded himself inside the home. Remaley is accused of spreading gasoline inside the house and setting it on fire.

Remaley ended up being airlifted to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The Fire Marshal's Office took the arson part of the case to a Bell County Grand Jury and obtained an indictment against Remaley. He was arrested on Wednesday and booked into the Bell County Jail for the arson charge.
